Christmas – More than just the birth of a Baby

Christmas poem

Yes, it is Christmas once again
To some it’s a gain and others a pain
But what a joy it is to those who know!

People from all around the world
All walks of life
All races and tribes
Celebrate the birth of a special Baby

But more than just the birth of a baby
To a young Jewish virgin lady
Over two thousand years ago
Christmas is the coming of Divinity to humanity
The birth of the Saviour of the world

The one who is called Immanuel – God with us
Born of the Holy Spirit, fully God and fully man
He became the baby that changed the world

It is Christmas
A celebration of the birth of the Redeemer
God’s greatest Gift to the world
Ushering in the hope of eternal life

On a day like this
Many people will eat and drink
But beyond the partying and reveling
Forget not the essence of His birth
He was born to Save…

It was written of Him before hand
He would save His people from their sins
But alas His own rejected Him
They refused Him as the Messiah

What a loss to them
But their loss became the gain of the world
To as many as receive Him
To them He gave the power to become the sons of God.
In him the promise to Abraham became fulfilled
In you shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.

It is Christmas, the birth of a Saviour
The unveiling of The Way to God
The Truth and the Light
Saviour, Redeemer…
The Lamb who takes away the sins of the world.
